Are you looking to be depressed?

Then just come visit my grandmother! I swear this woman is not happy unless she makes others miserable! She tells you things like it is and she will ask you questions. After she asks you these questions if you weren't thinking about it before you sure are thinking about it afterwards! So now I'm not in a good mood, not that I was before, but I'm definitely not in a good mood now. I just want to go crawl back into bed and stay there... Truth is I need to work on cleaning and organizing A LOT more... Ugh. I need a hug, anyone got one to spare? lol

There's a couple of people in my life who never fail to make me feel a little more depressed when I go talking to them. They are so full of negativity that sometimes I feel like they literally suck the life out of everything. Here's a hug!

I know sometimes I have to just get up and leave the room to escape the negativity. I don't understand how people can be so content with being negative as I know how you feel, it is like they suck the life out of you.

Yes, some older people can get on your nerves big time. And there's not much you can do about it, especially if it's your grandmother. We are taught to respect our elders, but shouldn't they also respect us? Hmph. Not necessarily. Because sometimes you just can't tell them anything. Sorry about your bad mood. wilsongoddard has a good idea about the music. And here's another hug for ya ----

Yes, news is one of the things she shares. I feel like, I don't watch it so I don't get depressed and upset as I am easily upset and very sensitive. I suppose in a way people like this are lonely, but it's hard to stand to talk to them for long when they bring you down as well. Thanks for the hugs, they are very much needed.

I usually avoid those kind of people because I am such a worrier. Being with people who would double my worries can really ruin my days. There really are people who are inconsiderate of others. They will tell you something negative or will feed you ideas and what ifs to make you worry. Better to ignore and don't listen to those people.

Yes I am a "worry wort" myself so being told things that make me feel negative and depressed doesn't help. My mind wanders so fast that I'm hard pressed to get it to stop before I get down in the dumps.

Some people are just good at being like that. Listen to some happy music for a bit to help yourself recover from your conversation with your grandmother. Actually, you may want to put together a "happy" playlist for yourself to listen to for after you have conversations with your grandmother.

Oh I know some people are like that and I'm no stranger to them. I think they just thrive on it and try to make others just the same way as she is. I go through things like this with a few at times and it really brings me down in the dumps, where I was already but it just gets me in a even worse mood. I'm sorry your grandmother is such a miserable person, wouldn't it be fun to put all those types on one island and let themselves make each other miserable and not us? Hugs for you.

I know a lady that is like that. I worked with her son and for some reason she had an interest in me. I went shopping with her a few times and we talked on the phone but I swear...everytime she wanted to know things about my life that were just not things I wanted to think about or share. Usually about my family and why I didn't have a relationship with them. I weened her away from our friendship, made her son mad at me when I told him that emotionally she wasn't good for me, and now I don't talk to her at all. That is not an option, I know, with a grandmother. I hope you are feeling better.

Well, I do not know what she said or did to you but I am sending hugs your way. My mom could have a very sharp tongue.
